It’s brilliant that mental health and wellbeing has more of a public profile these (hopefully) enlightened days. Feeling free to talk about mental health issues should be as much everyone’s right as dealing with physical issues; sadly there is still stigma in some quarters, and many people still feel unable to seek help in time.Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem.

Amazing charities like ‘Mind’ provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding, believing everyone with a mental health problem should be treated fairly, positively and with respect, and able to access excellent care and services.

Football In Mind FC are a charity football team established in 2019 through a group of friends who wanted to help those who are suffering with their mental health. Based in Redditch, Worcestershire, they began raising funds for Mind through their local branch in Birmingham.

Physical health is well known for improving mental health and wellbeing, so what better than a kickabout? If you’re interested in supporting Football In Mind- or even setting up a challenge match with them yourselves
